The Outstanding Latino/a Cultural Award in Literary Arts or Publications is one of several awards presented by the American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education, Inc. (AAHHE); it also sponsored by AT&T. The award is presented on Latinas/os whose literature, scholarship and other publications have made significant contributions to the understanding of Hispanic community and/or culture.[1]

The award is presented annually based on the author's achievements in fiction, non-fiction and/or newspaper editing. Nominations are open, but the winners are selected by a committee of AAHHE Board members. Winners are recognized at the Annual AAHHE National Conference.[2]
